Child Growth and Development Stages
Child Growth and Development Stages
Every mother is well aware of Child Growth and Development Stages before the child reaches one year of age. She knows when her baby should hold her head, how many months to stay straight, and so on. The situation changes when he reaches the age of one. Few parents can confidently say how old their child is to start riding a bicycle or tying his or her shoes.
The first thing to remember is that the growth of each child is unique. The skills developed by a child at a certain age may be at different levels, than those that are generally accepted as normal. If your child does not fall behind for more than a few months in developing one or more skills, then there is nothing to worry about. Some babies born prematurely may experience significant growth retardation, compared with those born prematurely. However, if you notice that your child’s growth has been delayed for more than a few months, and you have other disturbing symptoms such as very few or very few sounds, then the parent should seek professional help.
The following is a list of child development milestones. This is not a complete description of the developmental stages, but it can still give you an idea of the child’s growth rates.
1 year (12-14 months)
During this time the child is accustomed to walking or taking 2-3 steps without support. Confidently he sits down upright, puts toys in a box, and puts construction materials on top. They respond to simple words without touching, such as “give me”, “take”, etc. Without the words, “mother” and “father” the child can pronounce one to six simple words. Children in this age group talk a lot.
1.5 years old (16-18 months)
At this age, the children are walking and running very well. They like to climb stairs, drink from a cup, and do other simple things. Your child can try to eat on his own using a spoon. He can point to his nose, mouth, and eyes. and take a fallen toy without losing balance. He expresses emotions such as love, sweetness, excitement by making sounds. They have a favorite toy and choose to play with it. Children, this age can say at least 15 words. If your baby is being used for a pacifier, it’s time to dump it. At this time the pacifier is harmless, but if used for up to 3 or 4 years, it can cause some speech problems.
2 years old
In these years the kids run and jump very well. They can build a tower using 4-6 building blocks, throw and kick a ball, “feeding” their dolls. The child has the ability to move up and down safely, know his name and talk about himself to a third party. He points to his nose, mouth and eyes, which can take off a few of his clothes. At this point the children speak 15-50 words (and significant deviations from these numbers are common). The baby learns to control the movements of its bladder.
Manual visual integration is greatly improved. Therefore, many children love to draw, paint, build buildings using building blocks, draw pictures using simple puzzles.
Time to bring in a new baby bed. At this age, they try to jump out of their wombs, which can be dangerous. If you want to introduce an animal into your home, it is a good time to bring fish to the aquarium.
3 years old
Three-year-olds usually dress and undress themselves (with varying degrees of success). They can ride a tricycle, understand and respond to complex requests (such as “please take a pile of sand and put it in your bucket”). Make sentences using 4-5 words. They use pronouns such as “I”, “you”, etc.
The child in this period is usually trained in clay, however, sometimes he can still wet the soil with his underwear, but it is acceptable. This is also a very important time for speech development. Don’t forget to teach him short poems. Try to read him many books, explaining the pictures in the book in detail.
4 years old
Children of this age group are better able to control their bodies. They specialize in zipping and unzipping their clothes. They have already learned to use a spoon and fork. Four-year-olds can have up to 1000 words in their vocabulary. They can form sentences using 6-8 words and their speech is well understood by people outside the family. The height and weight of the child should grow evenly. If the weight is growing faster than the height your baby is likely to gain more weight
5 years old
A five-year-old can display more self-control than a toddler, and most children in this age group will be able to stay in class longer and listen to the teacher’s instructions. At the same time, a child of this age group is still learning to control his emotions, and he will still be prone to melting something as small as a spilled glass of milk.
